What is 5x10?

The 5x10, which reads as the five by ten, is a programming series open to all Lehigh students with a specific focus on first-year students and their connection to Lehigh. All first-year students are expected to attend five programs during the first ten weeks of the semester in at least three of the Five Foundations of Student Success in bLUeprint (they could attend one program or event that addresses each of the Five Foundations). Students will have a wide variety of programs to help them make their selections.

Information for First-Year Students

During the first ten weeks of college you will begin to develop routines, create new social connections and establish your place at Lehigh. We will expose you to the multitude of opportunities that exist on campus, and encourage you to reflect on those opportunities to maximize your Lehigh experience.

You will be able to explore the different 5x10 event options in LINC. If it is your first time using LINC, you’ll need to create an account, and then you’ll have an array of campus events at your fingertips! To track your progress:

  • Go to connect.lehigh.edu and log-in using your username and password
  • Click on “Banner,” then click on “Student Services”
  • Click on “NavigateLU Progress,” then click “Core Competency Progress”

The last day to complete the 5x10 program requirement is Friday, October 28, 2022.
